BlackBerry MDM Gets Vote of Confidence for Cross Platform Device Management (Survey)

BES10

A new research note put out by Jeffries (via CIO.com) shows another side of BlackBerry that has the potential to be reshaped into a thriving business. Jeffries performed a poll and found that 18% of IT execs planned on using BES 10 to manage non BlackBerry devices which took the top of the chart alongside AirWatch in a tie. Also interesting was the results that half of those planning on deploying BES 10 do not plan on deploying BlackBerry 10 devices.
